I call 2022 a year of people and making #citiesforpeople !
During the last 3 months, I met more people than I met in the previous 3 years of COVID!

I am grateful for being part of fantastic teams and organizations. I am grateful for having passionate team members and brave leaders around me & with me!

I get this question many times: Mustafa, what is your secret recipe? How can you do all of this? Do you have 24 hours/day?
My ingredients are::
1. Passion
2. Leaders who believe in me
3. Collaborative and inclusive team members
4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9 & 10. classified ingredients 😛
